His music is mostly not for me, though.


One should know it is not very inteligent to shame oneself in public...


Look who's talking.

Does it make you angry and insecure?


No. It makes me feel sad for the future of mankind.

Does it make you angry and insecure?



Question: why would it?
Do you believe assessments come only from a center of anger and insecurity?


Some people can only react to others by assuming others are all like them...

As Totoro's agent and manager, how have you managed not to see his posts about Zimmer-fans being "angry and insecure" to his anti Zimmer-comments?

You have to take this up with him when you meet him next.

He has the most satisfying body of work of any film composer.

His music stands alone as well as anyone's (and better than most), and he has composed an enormous variety of music, in a myriad of styles -- just consider Fitzwilly, Diamond Head, Images, Earthquake, Star Wars, Dracula, Far and Away, Schinder's List, Catch Me If You Can or Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

It always rankled me when people would say "John Williams' music all sounds the same" -- especially considering that within the score for Star Wars alone, you have music as diverse as "Princess Leia's Theme", Land of the Sand People" and "Cantina Band".

Star Wars burst onto the scene in 1977, and Williams' (fairly pricey) 2-record set went platinum, turning a generation of young people on to more classical-styled music, when their musical horizons hadn't previously extended beyond Kiss or The Bee-Gees. It's not a stretch to say that Williams' film music has helped keep an interest in symphonic music alive.

Williams has labored tirelessly for decades performing film music in concert -- not just his, but also that of his Hollywood colleagues. If it wasn't for John Williams, far-fewer people would be aware of what had come before -- and film music today would be of an even lower standard than it is.

Beyond that, his music is often infused with optimism, heroism and honest sentiment. Even in a score like Angela's Ashes there is a sliver of hope, and redemption.

Firstly, it was an honest and sincere question.
Secondly, if anyone posts on an open thread, anyone can respond.
See how that works?

Here's what I've "managed" to see (and what everyone else sees if they are paying attention).
I see a large portion of the Zimmer-apologists getting angry and insecure whenever they read a post that does not agree with their own.
Then they lash out like children (despite having a slightly more advanced vocabulary).
And it's at that point that the rest of us simply call out the BS.
Hence, my comment above.

Brand loyalty is fine but the sooner you stop seeing criticism towards an artist as a personal attack towards you, the better off you'll be.
I appreciate your efforts with the other Zimmer thread--it was reasonable and measured, so I know you are capable of it--but it's like you can never resist bringing your grudges from one thread to another.
As long as you keep doing that, you are your own worst enemy.

But hey, at least you said something nice about JW before your Pavlovian reaction towards Totoro kicked in.
Kudos.
And Totoro is certainly capable of speaking for him/her/it-self. big grin

John Williams has probably made me cry more times watching a film than any other film composer. The death of Pa Kent and funeral, Superman saying goodbye to his mother, the goodbyes in CEOT3K and E.T. Sheesh, can he turn on the water works.

Indeed?

Tell me more about it.

I’m not a huge fan of US-made westerns, but the first fifteen seconds of the main theme of The Cowboys says more about them for me than anyone since John Ford.
